It Takes A Village

It Takes a Village is an online community fundraiser. Rally your friends, family or colleagues and raise €340 to prevent a household from the trauma of emergency accommodation.

It takes a village

It Takes A Village is a community Fundraising Challenge that strives to raise a home saving gift of €340 to keep a household safe in their home and out of homeless emergency accommodation. Sadly, losing your home in the rental sector is the primary gateway to homelessness.

Threshold can keep a family from becoming homeless for just €340. Our incredible team of expert service advisors prevent approx. 9 households a day from the trauma of homelessness. It currently costs the state over €31,000 to keep a family in a hotel room for 10 months.

How it Works

We’ll set a challenge for a village of gamers, bakers, baristas and lots more categories of interest quarterly, or you and your village of friends, family or colleagues can organise your own challenge! Either way, we’ll be right by your side to help you with lots of tips and advice on how to smash your home saving €340 target!

Top Fundraising Tips

First up, have fun! It’s at the heart of every fundraiser and we’re here to help you maximise the fun in Fundraising! On social media? A Facebook fundraiser is a brilliant way to gather your village and raise awareness while raising your home saving €340. Not on Facebook? WhatsApp is an equally great way to rally the gang! Even better if you have Revolut. Why not make it super easy for people to ping their donation into a group vault. These are just a taster of some of the tips we highly recommend to get you started!

What You Fund

The impact of your donation will help us to continue providing our expert frontline services, vital for individuals and families with housing problems and those facing homelessness. You will also be funding our important advocacy work, as we strive to push Government to create a fair housing system for private renters in Ireland.
